The Costa Report

Listen to The Costa Report, an in-depth news podcast by our Rebecca D. Costa at
The first episode is co-hosted with Washington DC advisor on space flight to the House, Senate, and White House, Paul Stimers, titled The Human Conquest of Space. You can also listen for free to some of the show at
The Costa Report begins where 3-minute news reporting ends. It’s for listeners who abhor over-simplification, sound-bites, and headline-deep knowledge; who prefer hearing from qualified experts rather than agendized personalities; who long for respectful, informed, rational debate that examines all reasonable perspectives; who want to trust the media again.

Goodnight Moon Base

Among the many transformational initiatives that align with the Lifeboat Foundation mission to safeguard humanity, several of them aim to establish a viable civilization of humanity beyond Earth.
Establishing a passionate vision for this future in children is the goal of our Advisory Board member, Brett Hoffstadt. An established children’s book author and former aerospace engineer, he is in the process of publishing a forward-looking sequel to the popular classic Goodnight Moon. His book is called “Goodnight Moon Base”.
“Goodnight Moon Base” will embrace children’s love of human space exploration, transporting them onto a moon base for bedtime each night. By immersing them in this captivating world through vivid illustrations and enchanting rhymes, a future with this moon base will be so compelling and attractive that it will have to manifest itself into physical reality.

Let’s Lift the Earth!

Read Special Report “Let’s Lift the Earth!” at by our David Brin.
Within one or two hundred million years, as our Sun gets hotter, the inner edge of our sun’s Continuously Habitable Goldilocks Zone (CHZ) will move past where our planet orbits, causing the Earth to overheat. Perhaps we should lift the Earth’s orbit to solve this.
